Human growth hormone (HGH) is one of the most important bioidentical hormones affecting the natural aging process of the human body. Because it is responsible for the reparative and restorative functions of many vital tissues, adults who are deficient tend to age prematurely and struggle with weight gain.
What are human growth hormones?
HGH is produced in the pituitary gland and secreted throughout your lifetime. In childhood, it is responsible for growth. In adulthood, it tells your body when and how to repair and regenerate vital tissues.
Older people have lower levels of this natural hormone when compared to younger individuals, which can negatively impact the immune system, energy levels, and fat distribution. As this hormone imbalance progresses, the resources your body needs to repair damage diminish as well, and the bioidentical hormone can’t reach all of the bodily systems as effectively as it did when you were younger, resulting in suboptimal hormone levels and weight gain.
The benefits of HGH therapy
When patients who are deficient in HGH restore optimal levels of this vital hormone through hormone replacement therapy, they often experience a host of important benefits.
This treatment has the power to:
- Increase skin elasticity
- Improve lean muscle mass
- Strengthen bones and ligaments
- Enhance immune function
- Improve cardiac function
- Lower blood pressure
- Decrease body fat
- Promote longevity
- Reduce wrinkles
- Reduce hot flashes
Not only can these benefits make you look and feel younger – but with stronger bones, ligaments, and muscles, they can also reduce your likelihood of developing osteoporosis or experiencing an injury.

The treatment experience What to expect during HGH injections
HGH cannot be administered orally, because the body breaks down the substance during the digestive process. As a large protein molecule, it must be delivered via an injection beneath the skin, which is the approach we take at Angel Longevity Medical Center for hormone replacement therapy.
Once in place, the HGH will be absorbed into the bloodstream, where the liver can immediately process and use it. Our functional medicine specialists will customize the dose based on your needs, administering larger doses for weight loss and increased muscle mass, and smaller doses for general health optimization and recovery purposes providing you a bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plan tailored to your health goals.
Most of our patients enjoy their hormone therapy results very quickly, though your experience will depend on your age and overall health. Here is a look at what to expect during each month of your treatment:
In your first month after hormone therapy you will feel more energized and positive, and your sleep should improve.
You will begin to see a difference in your appearance. Your skin, hair, and nails will be stronger and healthier, and your muscle tone will improve. You may also notice that you lose weight more easily.
Months three to five:
During these months, your health will continue to strengthen. Your memory should be markedly better and you may notice more lean muscle development.
For most of our patients, this marks the end of their HGH treatment. At this point, your full results will be apparent with a dramatically improved sense of health and overall well-being.
